Recent studies reported that psychological factors might play a role in HRQoL in CD patients. This study is dedicated to investigate the correlation of various psychological factors with HRQoL and their potential impact on clinical outcome evaluation in Chinese patients with CD. Methods Forty active CD and 40 quiescent CD patients were prospectively enrolled. Validated Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ), Neuroticism (N) and Lie (L) subscale of the Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI), Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) and Buss-Perry Aggression (BPA) questionnaire were completed by each participant. Results Neuroticism, anxiety and depression were correlated well with IBDQ and its subscales in both active and quiescent CD groups. In quiescent CD group, neuroticism could predict IBDQ, IBDQ emotional function and IBDQ bowel function while anxiety could predict IBDQ systemic symptom. In active CD group, IBDQ emotional function could be predicted by both neuroticism and anxiety while other IBDQ and its subscales could be predicted by neuroticism independently. Conclusions Psychological factors, especially neuroticism and anxiety, significantly correlate with HRQoL in both active and quiescent CD patients, and should be taken into

Continued researches to identify predictors of HRQoL in CD are expected in the future to enhance our capacity to design interventions to improve HRQoL and maximize health outcomes.
